Bustedhalo has just posted a fascinating conversation with Sister Bernadette Reis of the Daughters of St. Paul (full disclosure: a friend) and her cousin, Paul Mages, a gay man living with his partner. Their candid conversation reveals a great deal about the how the church can better respond to its homosexual members. Here's Sister Bernadette: "I do wish that when Church teaching is presented to the general public, for example, as in the Catechism of the Catholic Church or in sermons, that the language chosen could be adapted to the background of the audience. This way, what the Church teaches may have less of a chance of being perceived as insensitive." Read the rest here at Bustedhalo.
